About Winery and Wines
Quinta do Convento is located in Serra de Montejunto (Montejunto mountain) in the heart of the Lisbon appellation, just west of Quinta de Monte d’Oiro and Quinta de Pancas, and east of Óbidos. The 16-ectare estate is predominately planted with Touriga Nacional, the signature variety for the great wines of Portugal, namely from Douro and Dão region, where it’s believed it came from. This demanding grape variety is perfectly adapted to this region climate and soil. It produces full-bodied, well-structured, long-lived wines famous for their finesse and elegance. In keeping with a longstanding tradition, it is blended with Merlot and Syrah, which add a touch of smoothness and complexity. In certain vintages, Pinot Noir can also be counted on to contribute with the well-known charm of wines from Bourgogne. The introduction of white Portuguese grape varieties Arinto and Fernão Pires and French grape varieties Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, allowed to produce excellent quality white wines. Arinto confers a fresh and mineral acidity to Quinta do Convento white wine, while Sauvignon Blanc contributes with well ripen fruits and asparagus aromas. On the other end the grape variety Semillon adds complexity and a persistent buttering sensation as well as a full-body finishing. In years of special climacteric conditions some of that varieties are to be used in Late Harvest vintages.
